I am a novice fisherman, mom, and doer at life. I am not sure if I will ever consider my self a professional at any of these things. I deeply love all of them though. If you would have asked me 4 years ago if I would have loved any of them I would have laughed at you! I wasn’t doing well at basic living.
My sobriety date is 11/29/2011. I don’t drink or do drugs because I can’t (I would die) and I have found life to be much more pleasant, in fact, amazing since that date. My struggle with alcohol lasted for over 15 years. That is a long story. One I attempt to tell in this blog.
The first time I truly fished was around that same date as well. Once I quit drinking, I needed something to do on the boat. I wasn’t taught to fish growing up by my dad the way many lady anglers are. My dad taught me so many things, but fishing is not on that list. I learned that after sobriety. I replaced the beer with a rod. I learn more each time I go and am working on being self-sufficient on the water!
Before I found my love of fishing, I found out I was pregnant. I am a mom and I love being a mom. Personally, I think my Vivienne is the best kid ever. I am sure you will, too! Well, after your own of course!
I am an all or nothing kind of gal. Go big or go home. Or how about, you just don’t even bother to show up. I can be offensive. That isn’t my goal, but I am not sorry. I am a Christian. This is most important. If it weren’t for Jesus, I wouldn’t still be here. Jesus and my parents. So hold on. I am new to this, but I am glad you are here to join me!
Disclaimers: I love pop music and anything else that makes me want to dance, I wear leggings as pants, sometimes I don’t eat because I am not hungry (cheese, chocolate, and bread I will always eat), my house is rarely clean, but always neat, I love my dogs as much as my kid (ok, not quite, but close), I love football, I hate pink, I have a short attention span, I love to read Juniors books, sometimes when I am super stressed I will smoke a cigarette instead of drinking (I hate that about myself), I can be judgy of other people, I LOVE football: Saints and Seminoles!
Oh! I moved to Tallahassee from New Orleans, LA. I loved living there. I hated living in DeLand, Florida, but as I get older I think I would appreciate it now.
Clearly, I misuse commas.
